    Well, it is hallowed ground, at least that's the belief of most people (just my opinion).

    However my own personal desires, as I wrote to AJiveMan would be for life to go on and use the land....out in nature or in a city, etc...normally again. Not make it exclusive, not set aside, etc.

    I love the ignore feature at DP, I really do.
    Go for it. It just proves that you cannot deal with people intellectually and rationally, which is pretty plainly obvious from your posts. Adios.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I agree with you, I think having a big memorial on the site is a waste of space. If the whole point was that the U.S. move on from the attack, taking valuable land in the middle of a major city and putting a big memorial on the site, that just shows we're still bothered by it. The terrorists win. We could have put a plaque on the pavement regarding the event and rebuilt another skyscraper.

    Remembering and honoring is, I think, very important to New Yorkers.

    This isn't only a museum; it's a memorial. And there are tasteful, dignified ways to solicit the funds required to maintain and sustain it without resorting to keychains and stuffed animals, etc.

    The 9/11 museum shouldn't even exist.

    It costs the museum something to operate and have memorabilia produced. I'm fine with it. My bigger issue would be making admission to the museum itself cost prohibitive for people on tight budgets to attend. The museums I like the best are like libraries, free admission. Charging for memorabilia and lunch at the museum cafe is perfectly fine IMHO.

    I love the 9/11 coffee mugs, plates etc. Why would you want to be reminded of that in the AM when you’re making yourself a brew?
